My handset is faulty within 28 days - what do i do?

If your phone has developed a fault, please contact our Customer Service department as soon as possible on 01773 522 309

Inside the first 28 days we will exchange a faulty phone. EE and plan.com customers can have it repaired under their faulty replacement service. Outisde of that, we will have it repaired under the manufacturer warranty.

The fault must be because the phone has gone wrong and not because it was dropped – we do check – and you need to make sure everything is returned to us safely.

If your phone no longer works because it was dropped in to water, impacted on a surface or otherwise accidentally damaged, please claim on your mobile phone insurance.

I want to cancel my order - what do I do?

You have up to 14 days* after receiving your phone to cancel your agreement, please contact our Customer Services on 01773 522 309

If you purchased your handset over the phone or online, under the “Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013”, you have the right to cancel your mobile phone contract within 14 days after getting your phone without incurring any costs, so long as there has been no more than 7 consecutive days usage, you ,or a person authorised by you, return it to us in pristine condition. Please note that you will be billed for any usage during this time.

If you have entered into a service agreement without any equipment, you’ll have 14 days from the date of your agreement. The equipment must be returned in a re-saleable condition with all box contents present. Please note that you will be billed for any usage during this time.
